And in doing so, they've unveiled a bloody red band trailer, with lots of swinging axes and imagery to remind audiences this is totally in 3D, bro. The film stars Benjamin Walker as the former president who goes to the shed, grabs the tree-chopping tool and faces off against the undead with some training provided by Dominic Cooper. Rufus Sewell shows up as the requisite bad guy saying something about wanting to build a nation for vampires, and if you've watched every episode of "True Blood," this won't be offering anything too new to the genre except perhaps some old timey clothes and a much better budget than the HBO show, which can look hilariously awful at times.
Can't say this left us too pumped. Maybe after "Cowboys & Aliens," "John Carter" and this film inevitably underperforms, Hollywood will stop putting square pegs into round holes. ALVH opens on June 22nd. [IGN]
